Control the UBTECH Alpha Robot Digital Servos (UBT-12HC) with EZ-Builder. The servos must be powered appropriately, and connected to the EZ-B v4 or IoTiny with the respective port. Visit the Config menu of this plugin to view the port configuration.

The Virtual Ports (V0..V99) in EZ-Builder can be assigned to the UbTech servos.

- This plugin requires the RX signal wire of the servo be connected to TX of the selected UART or digital port (if Software UART is selected)

- Hardware UART is available on the EZ-B v4 only, and is recommended if using an EZ-B v4. View the EZ-B v4 datasheet to identify the UART ports (0, 1, or 2). Datasheet can be found here: http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Lesson/18?courseId=4

- Software UART is available on both the EZ-B v4 and IoTiny

- The configuration menu also provides an option to select the Virtual Ports, which correspond with the ID's of the UBTech servos. If the UBTECH servo ID #0 is connected, select V0. #1 = V1, #2 = V2, etc..

- Default baudrate of UBTECH servos is 115,200
